Doily 14

This pattern looks to me like it is made in this manner:

  1. Make a ring
  2. [3 dc, chain 2 or 3] repeat 5 times and join
  3. Each of the 6 sections of the doily (or 4 sections if you’re making a butterfly) are completed separately. If possible, join the second section to the first when making the second, but if not, you can tack it together later
